Sometimes my best ideas come at the very last minute…like 30 minutes before the kids arrive and you find out Field Day is cancelled due to rain and you’ve gotta find something to fill up the morning – or at least part of it. Witness my ice cream cones! On each scoop they wrote a reason why they thought our trip to the beach was “cool” (Common Core opinion writing!). They had to have at least three scoops, but as you can see, some REALLY enjoyed the trip! And I’m enjoying this colorful bulletin board, which can stay up right until the end of school! Now, that’s cool!
